Netflix's 'Love, Death + Robots' is being called the new 'Black Mirror'

trending 29/03/2019

We're always after a new Netflix series to watch, and apparently 'Love, Death + Robots' is one to watch for 'Black Mirror' fans. But like, a bit more intense. 

The series' 18 episodes are 6-18 minutes long each, and are all completely different to each other in plot, characters and style, much like Black Mirror. 

All episodes loosely align with the show's title, based in a futuristic timeline, but range from being grim AF to light-hearted with a dash of dark comedy. Most play on a dramatic twist at the end, leaving you screaming for more. 

The show is executively produced by David Fincher (Se7en, Fight Club) Joshua Donen (House of Cards, Mindhunter), Tim Miller (DeadpoolTerminator: Dark Fate) and Jennifer Miller, so it was always going to be good. 

Also it's incredibly violent, if you're into that sorta thing. Here's what Twitter had to say:

"Delivering bleakness and black comedy in distilled form via stories that rarely last more than fifteen minutes, it's like Black Mirror for the ADD-addled video game crowd," said Nick Schager of The Daily Beast. 

David Fincher said: "We always thought there was an audience for it, but it was a very difficult thing to pitch. What we wanted to do was find stories and find artists and find directors, animators, production companies that we could build a sandbox for. Hopefully they'll take root, and hopefully, we'll get to make more weird, different kind of stuff."

Check out the trailer above (which is very intense in itself) and see if it looks like a bit of you.
